Infosys and Stanford University’s Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering (ICME) announced a strategic relationship late on Tuesday to develop curriculum in data science and analytics.

The focus would be on real-world problem areas and will undertake joint research using data science to find solutions to key industry issues said an exchange filing from Infosys.

Vishal Sikka, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Infosys, said in the statement: “Rapid advances in computing and technology have placed many powerful algorithms only a few clicks away. Gaining meaningful insights from large volumes of data has however become harder, as the deluge of data continues to outpace the gains in technology. We look forward to conducting meaningful research with world-class researchers on issues of most importance to our clients and their business of today and tomorrow."

These modules will draw upon identified needs of customers drawn from Infosys’ engagement with enterprises across industries and will undertake joint research to apply Data Science and Analytics to solve industry issues.

While Infosys will gain access to talent at ICME through this arrangement, students from Stanford would be encouraged to participate in InStep, Infosys’ internship program and explore career opportunities.
